"Donald Rubinstein’s novel, unpredictable one-man show is hard to match…stunning, house-shaking…hauntingly beautiful." LA Weekly
“What’s the source of Donald Rubinstein’s strange, jazzy, unique songs? Judging from his well concocted but often twisted work; he must have the oddest muse in the world, and also one of the best. He’s got enough weird poetic/musical genius in his brain to rival Jim Morrison.” Santa Fe Reporter
"If I were a smarter human being I would now invent a word that would explain exactly how freakin' cool and original in thought and execution Donald Rubinstein is with his music. This new word would have to embody the talent that you hear within the first 30 seconds of your first Donald Rubinstein song, that puts your brain on some new rails you didn't even know existed between your ears...discover the genius landscape."

“Artful, standout songs…devoid of transitory trendiness.” Los Angeles Times
